  • Description


    We are Dani and Sanghui, two friends who started this amazing project together last September. We run an albergue on the Camino de Santiago and receive pilgrims from every corner of the world everyday. We are currently looking for some help to offer our guests the best experience on the Camino.

    Our albergue is located in a small village near Burgos with about 1000 habitants. The capacity of our place is 29 people and we have a bar/ a reception, 3 private bedrooms, 3 rooms with 22 bunkbeds in total. We serve dinner to the pilgrims every day, where everybody gathers and shares the journey together in celebration and joy on the Camino.

    We need help with house cleaning in the morning. We share the task together, and the routine includes doing the dishes, doing the laundry, cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms, and making the beds. When the pilgrims start arriving around the noon, we may need some help to attend them. We also ask to join us in the evening to prepare dinner and tidy up the kitchen for 2-3 hours. We appreciate your work with good quality and we’ll treat you like a part of our family.
    We need helpers who can stay with us minimum one month or more. Thanks!
